Thank you for your interest in receiving our Courage Kits for siblings of children diagnosed with cancer. Cooper Trooper Foundation currently distributes our FREE Courage Kits to these special siblings in two ways. 1.) A kit can be requested via our online form to be mailed (at no charge) to the sibling(s) home address. This can be requested by a family member or friend who has the information needed. It does not necessarily have to be requested by the sibling’s parent. 2.) Courage Kits can be mailed in bulk quantities to hospitals and facilities, serving families of children diagnosed with cancer. For example, a Child Life Specialist could complete the form for Hospitals/Facilities, to request a shipment of Courage Kits, that could then be on-hand and distributed in that setting.
“The Caring and Courage kits are a wonderful resource for both the siblings and caregivers of patients with cancer. Brothers and sisters can have a difficult time when their sibling is diagnosed with cancer and parents may not know what to do. These kits help to recognize that struggle and to elevate the sibling so they know they are still loved and important to the family.”
